Friday the 13th means a message from Nokia, not Jason and a hockey mask
Friday the 13th usually means a big guy with a hockey mask is coming to get you if you are a promiscuous teenager who likes to flaunt a sexual relationship. But tomorrow the date also means that Nokia has something to tell you. Actually, it doesn't seem to be a new product announcement, so don't expect to be haunted by the Nokia Lumia 1520 and its giant 6 inch screen.

According to the text, Nokia is planning on showing us how our Nokia Lumia will survive the 13th. Which does bring up an interesting point. We've never seen guys like Jason or Freddy or even Chucky sporting a smartphone. Which model would they use? We could just imagine Jason getting excited about advancing to the next level of Angry Birds. A more cerebral sort, Freddy Krueger would probably be more of a Words With Friends type of guy (although what does that say about Alec Baldwin?)

Wow, we certainly got off the track here. Anyway, just remember that you're supposed to check in here on Friday a few times so we can tell you what message of importance the Finnish based OEM has for you.

I dreamed that Nokia rejected the deal with Microsoft and decided to go for both Android and WP OS. Hope my dream comes true!

Makes for easier troll hunting. Should made mine earlier, but back in those days all you needed was a username, no need for an account

the thums down button has such a negative impact on the nice article page , i think negative is only for trolls and haters ,we can be constructive and we can appreciate a person's comment without that button, but that is just my oppinion ... and that of facebook :)

i think this page is for mature ppl....they dont have to feel embarrassed,hated or trolled for thumb downs....they r mature enough to think what is wrong with the comment and think of it as only a disagreement and not troll....this could save PA some comments thumbs down should be back on PA IMO

Jason= Operates on primitive instinct. Would need something basic with an idiot friendly interf - iPhone Freddy= Maniacal deep thinker who enjoys conjuring up creative ways to kill. Would enjoy a more advanced interface he can add his own personal touch to while offering hands free performance. - Moto X Chucky= Would need something to help ease his little man complex.
